- Please eat something 20-30 minutes prior to your appointment. A combination of protein and carbohydrates are recommended such as peanut butter and crackers or a cheeseburger. This keeps your blood sugar steady and helps you to be more comfortable and less sensitive.
- Avoid any form of caffeine 2-3 hours prior to your appointment. Caffeine is a stimulant and will heighten your sensitivity.
- If you bruise easily, we recommend taking Arnica before procedure and after. Arnica is available at most health food stores.
- If you are on blood thinners and if it is ok with your doctor stop taking them at least 24 hours before eyebrow procedures is recommended. Again, please check with your doctor to make sure you can go 24 hours without them. You may take them right after procedure is finished.
- Avoid tanning and tanning beds 2 weeks prior to procedure.
- Alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, niacin, and vitamin E consumption can cause excessive bleeding, which will prevent the necessary amount of ink from being imbedded into your skin, and interrupt the healing process of the skin. Do not partake at least 24 hours before procedure.
- You may request a patch test 2 weeks before procedure. We are required, by the color manufacturer, to offer that to you but is not needed. A patch test does not ensure you will not develop a reaction later on.
- Come to appointment with clean and dry hair.
What Happens During the Treatment
- Client's consultation
- Discussion of treatment steps
- Choosing brow shape and color
- Eyebrows are then perfectly measured onto the skin using several measurement tools
- 10-minute numbing process using a lidocaine based cream
- Using microblade, create your new eyebrows (about 15 minutes each brow)
- Pigment is applied on top of the skin and left to absorb (Treatment takes about 1 and 1/2 hours)
Touch up is included in the initial cost. The touch up is recommended only after 3 weeks. Prior to that, the skin will be too thin and too sensitive. You will probably need a touch up to fill in any areas that got wet or faded, or to achieve a darker color.
